$1 million bond for suspect accused of killing deputy

LEBANON, OH (FOX19) -
Bond was set at $1 million for the suspect accused of killing a Warren County Sheriff's Deputy.

Marcus Isreal appeared in Lebanon Municipal Court Thursday afternoon on charges of involuntary manslaughter and failure to comply related to the death of Sgt. Brian Dulle.

 "Since the tragic death of Deputy Brian Dulle, as you can imagine there's a lot of people suffering in the Dulle family, Warren County Sheriff's office family, and to deal with those types of things we look for positives that can start a healing process," said Warren County Sheriff Larry Sims.

Prosecutors noted Isreal's criminal past, which includes drug charges and aggravated robbery charges, and asked for a high bond. Prosecutors are preparing to present the case to a Warren County grand jury on Friday.

"We have obtained a lot of the information and evidence from the state patrol, and we intend to present the case to the grand jury tomorrow for the existing charges that he's been charged with as well as potentially other charges," said Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell.

Isreal is accused of leading police on a chase early Tuesday morning and striking Dulle as he was trying to lay down stop sticks.

Family members of Israel shed tears during the hearing as the judge set Isreal's bond at $1 million, meanwhile Warren County Sheriff Larry Sims says the brief hearing was a small bright spot amid the sadness.
 
"The arrest and arraignment that just occurred is a very positive sign, that we hope to use to lift spirits, we have a pretty tough next couple of days," Sims said.
 
As the department prepares to put Sgt. Dulle to rest, the Sheriff says they can now focus on giving the deputy a proper goodbye.
 
 "This will allow us to concentrate on providing respect, and allow other people to provide the same in the next couple of days for service for Brian Dulle," Sims said.
